Some of my team (the Stampin' Acorns) went to Telford but I was on holiday in Australia with my husband. I did manage to go to an OnStage Local event but it was not really that local as it was on the Gold Coast. I'll post more details and photos another day.
It's usual for uplines to give Team Gifts to downlines going to a Stampin' Up! event with you. In theory we went to the same OnStage Local event, because they are global events where everyone gets to see and do the same thing. In practise, they weren't even on the same continent so I left mine behind with one of my team to give out to people. It's not their fault I wasn't there.
Anyway, here's the gift packages that I left with Esther.
I love the acorns from the Acorny Thank You stamp set. So cute and apt for my team. Can you spot the dimensional backing that managed to creep into the photo!? They get everywhere, LOL.
Here's a closer look at the packaging.
I'm not sure that people were able to get to the contents without ripping the bag because a fair amount of the Tear & Tape Adhesive was used.
The bag itself was embossed using the Woodgrain Textured Impression Embossing Folder that I had brayered Soft Suede ink over. The embossing folder didn't quite meet the end of the bag but I disguised this by running some of the Botanical Washi Tape around it. Guess this means the secret is out now.
I used the acorns as tags so that I could write people's names on.
Details of some of the products used are as follows:
I'm really hoping that the stamp set and punch make it into the new Annual Catalogue, but if they don't I certainly won't be parting with them.
